Thanks for looking. I have a Dell Dimension 8300 Desktop, and it seems that it has become hijacked (Spyware). While surfin' the net, all of a sudden, pop-up's GALORE! And not just one here and one there, they were coming in one on top of the other, too fast to click off, until there were about 30+ windows open and my comp would freeze. I downloaded Ad-Aware SE, ran that a few times... ran my McCaffee Virus scan a few times, would re-boot afterwards, but the pop ups seemed to have kept re-installing themselves everytime. Also, When I go to Add/Remove Programs, there are some there that just can't be removed, and now there's a bunch of new stuff in there and I'm not sure what to do. When I FINALLY got a hold of a Dell tech, she had me go to Start >Run>, then do a sysconfig>Start-up>Disable All. It seemed to work (?), but I'm not sure what she had me do, if it will cause probs in the future, and also not really sure how that would have gotten rid of the spyware in my system?! I just know that it couldn't have been that simple?
Here is my Hijackthis log. Any help would be much appreciated!!!
